Consumer Controlled Government
By Perry Willis

Yesterday we explained how . .

  • The government is NOT the society, the country, the nation, the culture, the people, the traditions, or the land. Instead . . . 
  • Government is merely a service provider, like Exxon or Microsoft.
  • Service providers are supposed to serve, not rule.
  • A government, properly understood, should be below you, NOT above you. Therefore...
  • Government should never INITIATE violence.

So we urged you to STOP thinking of The State as some magical, mystical entity, and instead think of it the same way you think of Walmart. Today we’ll take this concept further . . .

If Walmart does something you dislike you can FIRE IT and hire Kmart or Target instead.

Please notice that you don’t have to ask anyone’s permission to do this, and Walmart won’t do anything to harm you.

You have all the power. Walmart has none.  

This is true for all service providers, except The State. Walmart must earn your support, The State does not. The State will harm you if you try to withdraw your business. Thus . . .

The State does what it wants, NOT what you want.  

Can you vote to change The State’s management? Not really. That requires the permission of your fellow “citizens.”

          We are all captive customers, held in bondage to the politicians and each other.

Does it need to be this way?

What if The State lost the power to hold its customers captive? What if The State could no longer INITIATE violence against its customers? Then it would have to earn your support.

You would have the control.

Notice that this idea says nothing about downsizing government. Government could be as big or as small as its customers want it to be.

This would be consumer controlled government.

Such a government would serve, not rule. It would be below you, not above you.

Do you want to explore these possibilities, and promote these ideas? If so, we need your help. We’re not like The State. We can’t force you to do anything.

We must persuade you and earn your support.
